Changes to testing for Coronavirus

Free testing for coronavirus (COVID-19) from the NHS has ended for most people in England.

You can buy a COVID-19 test from some pharmacies and retailers, in person or online.

There are a small number of people (e.g. with certain health conditions, if you are going into hospital, or if you work in a care home) who will still be able to get free COVID-19 tests from the NHS.
